Kolstein Rentals – Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass rentals in New York

Sample Violas

Below are examples of the caliber of rental viola available to you as a Kolstein Rental Customer. We have hundreds of instruments to choose from, but specific models are subject to availability.

Tier One

The model 50 viola outfit is available in the newly designed & handcrafted Strad Model. These instruments are an excellent quality viola in a most affordable student price range. This model viola offers a most impressive tonal quality and esthetics with moderately flamed backs, ribs, and necks; finely grained spruce tops; and spectacular rich, transparent varnish, associated with much higher priced violas. This viola is available in the following sizes: 14″, 15″, 15-1/2″, 16″, 16-1/2″

Tier Two (Elite)

The model 300 is the Master Art series of the DiVacenza line. These finely handcrafted violas are made with select quality, seasoned spruce tops and highly figured maple backs, ribs, and necks. All fittings are Hill style pegs and tail pieces. These instruments feature an elaborate antiquing varnish process that gives the model 300 a quality, aged appearance. Tonally and esthetically these fine violas are true Master Art quality. As with all the DiVacenza violas, setup work is accomplished to full professional standards in the Kolstein violin shop.
